The Surprising Truth About Toxic Metals and the Health of Our Children

You may have read or heard about the damage heavy metals can do to a developing child’s mind and overall health.

Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity in children may include:

  • Psychosis

  • Autism

  • Depression

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Sleep disorders

  • Anxiety

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Mood swings

  • Digestive disorder

  • Anemia

What causes toxicity and what should you do if you suspect your child’s symptoms may have to do with heavy metal toxicity?


How are children exposed to toxic metals?

We are bombarded with toxic chemicals routinely.  We breathe, smell, absorb through skin, ingest, implant or inject harmful toxins into our body every day through our environment.

There has been a 10-fold increase in children with inflammatory bowel disease in the past 10 years alone. These digestive disorders are on the rise due to the direct and indirect effects of toxic chemicals.


Directly toxins cause oxidative stress, inflammation and can disrupt hormones.

Indirectly, they depress the immune system, lead to nutritional compromise and impair detoxification pathways.


Eliminating the underlying burden of chemical toxicants including toxic metals and healing the digestive tract may prevent adverse health outcomes and restore health. 


According to the CDC in 2013, most American adults and children have bio-accumulated numerous potentially toxic chemicals.


Exposure to toxins for each individual and their reaction to the toxins are dependent on their body’s ability to detoxify, accumulation of the toxins and length of exposure.  Toxic exposures have proven to cause chronic illness and developmental delays.


In the United States, 1 in 3 are diagnosed with multiple chronic conditions.  In children, 1 out of 68 is diagnosed with a developmental delay.


There are a number of diseases researchers have been able to link as a result of chemical toxicant exposure.


These chemicals cause carcinogenic, hepatotoxic (liver), neurotoxic (brain), immunotoxic, and developmental toxicities leading to diseases such as dementia, autism, cancer, infertility, autoimmune, mental health, allergies and skin disorders.
